In Austria, Prince Metternich passes Six Articles which limit the
powers of the Diets in constitutional states and subordinate local
state law to federal law. By doing so, he hopes to maintain the
system of despotic government in the face of popular opposition
from pro-democratic movements like the Hambach festival.
